Lifetime’s ‘Whitney’ Biopic Set To Air Saturday

In an attempt to comeback from the epic fail that was the Aaliyah biopic, Lifetime is going full force in promoting Whitney starring YaYa Dacosta. Angela Bassett is the film’s director so we’re sure this is already better than other biopics the network has tried to take on. Lifetime will premiere the movie this Saturday, Jan. 17 at 8/7 central. Check out YaYa Dacosta’s take on Whitney’s ‘I Will Always Love You,’ in the clip below. It’s scary how spot on she is with her impersonation of the legendary Nippy.
